The French Revolution is pretty bizarre. Like if you read polemics from back then it's some variation of "We must defend rule by the people, justice, and a well-ordered government" followed by justifications for killing 20-30 people.
>>
>>586370
that's because france had no history of representative government or a rule of law that wasn't an exercise in arbitrariness by the nobility

american frontier had no nobility and was able to establish its own customs for a hundred years and so its revolution came out a lot better

It's not like these are war games or other hyper-detailed, number-crunching games.

Seems interesting, particularly the French Revolution one, but I don't clearly see how the game functions. You have to post your actions ? Have any of you practiced it before ?
>>
Growing up as a teen I did some star wars RPing. Its fun but truth be told, the kind of internet people that do this stuff are usually the worst kind.

They compensate their lack of social life and status by being majestic dicks and know-it-alls in the one arena they do rule: Internet RPing.

IIRC you send a private message to the GM of the game saying what you want to do. Every GM has their own way of doing things so you can probably just ask them.

Not really related to OP but what books would /his/ recommend for reading about the French revolution?
>>

Fran├žois Furet.

>>587715

What I mean by this is that people who frequent those boards are the kind that will never, ever in any situation just say:

"Hmm, Ok agree to disagree, Let's just have a good time" but would rather keep arguing doing to a painstakingly, hairsplitting point about some nerdy fact which doesn't really matter. Why? To ascert that THEY are in the right and the most elite expert of *whatever topic the board caters to*.

I think eRegime is immune to that though, because it's not devoted to a specific subject like Star Wars or WWII or American politics or whatever.

old books from the first decades of the 20th century aren't a problem for most subjects, but books in the 19th and earlier centuries have to be treated with caution for all sorts of reasons:
* propaganda
* state censorship
* lax historiographical standards
* lack of access to foreign materials if dealing with a foreign country

Those are some silly reasons to discount good histories.

>Propaganda
Yes, this is a thing, but it's still a thing today. Do you think books written in the USSR were impartial? Or in a great many countries today? I don't think books by Iranians, published in Iran, on their history are going to be entirely objective.

>State censorship
See above.

>Lax historiographical standards
This is legit but you can generally tell if someone can be relied on or not as long as you have more modern sources to consult.

>Lack of access to foreign materials
This isn't really valid. Respected historians of foreign countries almost always knew the languages of those countries, and then some more. Actually a lot of the most venerated historians of foreign societies in the 19th and 20th century actually lived in those societies and took up their culture.
>>
>>593163
It's almost like History is a rigorous field where mutually supporting studies and criticism produce meaningful knowledge.
>>
>>594784
Until this happens: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Chronology_%28Fomenko%29
>>
>>594819
Fomenkoism was created by a man without any sort of historical credentials, was rejected universally by the historical community, and has made no impact and formed no basis of academic history.

Your example demonstrates the exact opposite of your claim.
>>
>>594828
This.

Unfortunately it's still pretty popular in Russia, just not among historians or scientists.
>>
>>594773
>lax historiographical standards
>silly reason to discount

Fuck off back to literary criticism.
>>
>>586165
same. forgot what the game was called but you could make your own city essentially and it was rather boring now looking back on it.
>>

Just because historians in the 18th and earlier centuries didn't footnote everything doesn't mean their writings were shit.

That doesn't sound boring.

eRegime itself. A supermod named FSAD made it as a joke because he didn't like the default Invisionfree layout, so back in January 2014 he "gayed" the whole forum's appearance, so like new post/thread icons would be people defiantly walking out of closets and stuff. It was pretty funny.

how do you play these?

Read the rules for whatever game you're interested in. Each GM has their own way of doing things.

So a new game is starting up on the site, set in 1860. It's a US politics game.
